Seven Aphorisms Out - Ten Commandments Next?

In a surprisingly unanimous verdict, the Supreme Court agreed with a small Utah community that the quirky quasi-religious group Summum cannot place one their granite "Seven Aphorisms" markers next to a similar display of the Ten Commandments.

Which is fine with me, in the big-picture view of things. We need to get all religious symbols off of OUR property, and that's the long-term goal. To allow Summum to put up their own monument next to the Ten Commandments would just mean one more thing to remove from the lawn when we finally wake up and realize that we do not need the government sponsoring a religion -- any religion -- in this country.
